The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?

Meet Sara – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Stronger

What word did you choose and why?


   I chose the word Stronger. I want to feel stronger in my Faith, in my health, with my family, in my marriage, and in my business. I am taking steps to create the strength I want to see in those areas and want to continue to build on those as the year progresses.

This year I am focusing on the word Stronger. I want to feel stronger in all areas of my life: my Faith, in my health, in my family and marriage, and in my business. I have set goals for my business and am setting aside time each week to work on those. I’m also working to be involved in the community once again. The last several years I’ve stepped back from that as I raised my daughter, but now it feels like we are at a good point for me to start dipping my toe back into that again, which I’m very excited about. With our family time, I want to focus on the things that nurture and just really build the bond that the three of us have. My health has been a journey for a long time, and I’m at a point on that journey where I am ready to start building more physical strength.


If you could go back and talk to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?

            If I could go back and talk to Sara a year ago, I’d tell her that she’s going to accomplish a rough year with her Faith, her family, and her friends. And I’d tell her she has all the building blocks that she needs to create the strength she wants.




What is The BE Project?

Have you ever stopped to think about who or what you want to be?  Most often there is a word that drives you.  If you sit in the silence and really think about what type of person you want to be… there will be a word, sometimes more than one word, that will guide you along and push you to keep being a better version of yourself.  This photo project has become something that has touched my heart and hopefully those that have participated. I chose to shoot all of the images in black and white because I wanted the least amount of distractions.  Just the human and the word.   This project is the stories of some amazing people, their stories, and what these words mean to them.  Some have participated each of the 4 years we have done this, some are new each time.  It’s an amazing honor to follow along in their journey and document who they are becoming.

Want to read more stories from others in our community and their BE words?  Head over to the BE Project Page and read the stories of the amazing humans that have participated. 

I challenge you to find a word that resonates with you.  Who do you want to strive to be?  What word leads you day to day?  Join us in our project – what word will describe who you want to BE?
